The classic musical is the story of Laurey and the two rivals for her affections: Curly, a cowboy, and Jud, the hired farmhand. The play takes place in 1906 in an Indian territory of the American West during the time when Oklahoma was established as a state. It tackles class issues between the farmers and the cowmen in the still developing, rugged landscape of a state in its infancy as characters struggle to find hope, love and the fulfillment of "the American Dream".
